"Sol y sombra" explores the diverse career of Spanish artist Miquel Barceló. This extensive exhibition highlights Barceló's interdisciplinary nature, and is the first to focus on a contemporary artist at the Hôtel Salé since reopening in 2014.
At the end of March 2016, the Musée national Picasso-Paris will welcome Miquel Barceló. Born in 1957 in Majorca, he will be the first contemporary artist invited to present a monographic exhibition at the Hôtel Salé since its reopening in 2014. The exhibition, titled "Sol y sombra," will display an ensemble of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and works on paper from the 1990s to today. The exhibit will center around the artist's diverse domains of creation and highlight the affinities of his work with the attitudes, the motifs, and the creative processes of Pablo Picasso. At the same time, the Bibliothèque nationale de France will present an exhibition focused on the engravings of Barceló. Conceived as a partnership, these two exhibitions will give the public the opportunity to discover, and rediscover, the rich and protean work of this well-known artist of the contemporary scene.
